MNT 1 million for health workers and MNT 500,000 for resident doctors working at the outbreak site
At today’s Cabinet meeting, it was decided to provide one million MNT for each doctor, nurse and staff working at the epicenter, and 500,000 MNT for each resident doctor.
The required 2 billion 780 million MNT will be allocated from the government reserve fund. Currently, there are 2,230 doctors, staff and 1,100 resident doctors at the outbreak site.
Although the health sector has been fully staffed since November last year, the number of cases is increasing and the risk of infection among doctors and staff is increasing. As a result, workloads and risky conditions can lead to poor health, family and personal well-being, depression, and a lack of motivation to work.
